I agree as well. I do post a lot on usenet as well (using a different
address, so I can see where an address was scraped from), and I can
say that most of my spam goes to the addresses that are visible on
Debian web pages, namely mh+debian-packages <at> zugschlus.de and
mh+debian-bugs <at> zugschlus.de. Addresses used on Usenet do not get a
lot of spam nowadays.
Marc, rather reachable than spam-free
